Your Mama Hears...

...from a source we'll call Betty Blathersalot that Jenufleck or Affner–or whatever it is all the celebrity gossips call Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner–are back out looking for big new digs and have their notoriously fickle eyes on a twenty+ million dollar property.

The couple currently shack up in Brentwood at the house Miz Garner owned before hitching her wagon to Mister Affleck. But soon after a bun showed up in Miz Garner's oven, the happily marrieds starting touring all the high priced properties in the Platinum Triangle and beyond.

The freakishly well informed Nelly Knowsitall told us some time ago that Garfleck–or whatever–have come thisclose to buying at least five lavish estates including one on S. Mapleton Drive in the Holmby Hills and another one not too far from the wonderfully accented blog queen Ariana Huffington's home on N. Carmelina Avenue in Brentwood. But when push came to shove and it was time to put the quill to the contract, the indecisive duo got cold feet and backed away from each of the deals. More recently, we chit-chatted with Ms. Knowsitall who whispered in our big ear that she hears that Affgar–or whatever–are now planning to sit tight on Tigertail Road until the market stabilizes a bit.

On the contrary, another of Your Mama's better connected sources who is not Betty Blathersalot tells us the paparazzi hounded parents of two are indeed negotiating for a very impressive piece of real estate.

So who knows? However, if they really do buy the house we hear they're hot for, it would be a real mitzvah for the sellers who have been trying to unload their very private and well secured white elephant for a long time.

I won't believe in Jennifleck buying anything until I see photos of them moving in.

They should just move to his house in Georgia for a while (if he still owns it).

Are they looking at Nancy Davis's Lion's Gate estate? That's been on the market for a while but I think the price dipped just below the $20 Million mark... Mama, why aren't you saying which house they may or may not be looking at?

Your details are extremely sparing today Mama, but I'm sure there's a good reason for it. White elephant on the market for a long time indicates to me the place will need a major overhaul. Nice, my kind of real estate. I've nevah evah found a place I was anywhere near happy with as-is, and think the process of getting it there is even better than enjoying the finished product. If only it worked that way when it comes to raising kids :)

What was the name of that house that he looked at when Matt Damon and his wife were out here. It was some famous producer or director's old estate.
I think it was out below Griffith Park?

I forget the Name. I think it was out near his brother's house?

it was the de mille estate in Laughlin Park..28 million then I think the low 20's now. (the owners bought it for under 5 a few years ago) The place was only 1 block from ben's brother Casey's house...who (along with his actress wife, Summer) Jen feels those two are are kryptonite.

"pretty much" don't make it so. It's just as much Beverly Hills (more if you consider it has the zip code) and if my MAMA wants to call it Beverly Hills on HER blog, she can do what she damn well pleases.

Mama I read recently that Ben and Jenn are looking for a new home for safety reasons, as she has a stalker. You can't blame her. She has a growing family to be concerned for.

It is likely the new home will be highly private with high tech security.

Have a great Mama. Luv You!

How about they move out of LA and leave Hollywood for good?

I'm not a stalker. I am just trying to show her she can do better than that wimp Ben Affleck. She won't be sorry.
